2016 Nissan Rogue Review
The Nissan Rogue is the automaker’s compact five-seat crossover SUV. Redesigned for the 2014 model year, the new Rogue has attractive styling and packaging that overwhelms its unexciting powertrain and predictable road manners.
It’s a substantial step up, though, from the former Rogue, which Nissan sold as the Rogue Select through the 2015 model year.
2016 Nissan Rogue Redesign
The first thing you will see with this present generation of Nissan Rogue is the fine styling. The front end is traditional yet modern, the sides feature intriguing character lines, and the entire look is upscale compared to the economical appearance of the first-generation Rogue. The inside is better arranged and finished in attractive, higher-quality stuff as well.
2016 Nissan Rogue Exterior
Nissan’s done an absolutely Honda-like occupation before few years, evolving styling in slow measures to remove the odder flourishes of the past. Recall the last Rogue’s insane grille treatments? They are broomed. The side and fender sculpting have borrowed some lessons in the wild Juke. From the look of the chamfered taillights, it’s also clearly seen the latest Santa Fe and CX 5. All the details push the Rogue’s corners in more evocative directions than the plainer first-generation crossover.

Nissan has also delivered a handsomely finished inside, one with high-quality stuff. It is not damning it with faint praise to call it elegantly common. It’s laid out for quick perception, with round knobs for climate control and audio framing a center stack with the LCD monitor. There is also a cowl over the gauges that is balanced out by a pair of skinny ports over the center stack.
2016 Nissan Rogue Performance
The Rogue continues with the 2.5-liter inline-4 and continuously variable transmission (CVT) found in the first-generation version. Power output’s still fixed at 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque.
Dunk deeply into the gas, and the CVT modulates the differences between its pulleys to simulate an automatic with an infinite set of gears. It does so fast and easily, but the Rogue doesn’t have fixed ratio points”gears” , or shift paddles to reach them, like our present CVT favored in the Subaru Forester. The result is a poor eight-second acceleration run to 60 miles per hour, and a noisy pause at the productive end of the Rogue’s powerband. When compared with turbocharged four-cylinders and automatics in the Santa Fe, Getaway, and others, it is less satisfactory. The Rogue comes with an Eco mode, which keeps it from revving out quite as much, but in addition, it dulls throttle response unless you pin the accelerator.
Just as impressive is the Rogue’s protected and large driving character. Electric power steering system isn’t the curse here that it is in some compact cars. It doesn’t wander and search on grooved concre and takes to changes with smooth responses, but it isn’t fast or particularly educational. The suspensor’s separate all around, and ride quality is quite comfortable.
2016 Nissan Rogue Features
For 2016, the Rogue is offered in S, SV, and SL models.
This connectivity kit is among the easier systems you’ll find in the class, with more limited functionality, but clearer operation than the befuddling Ford setup, as an example.
The Rogue SL gets 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, leather upholstery, Bose audio, NissanConnect, Siri Eyes Free, navigation, a power tailgate, and surround-view camera, which will be among our must have characteristics now that is it is spread outside the Nissan/Infiniti conglomerate. A Premium Package for the SL adds a panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, and Moving Object Detection.
